First will be the 'Monkeyfest' at Armitage Bridge; promising 50 beers,over the weekend of 2/3rd July with music, and a barbeque. If previous attempts are anything to go by, then this is a must visit event.
The Star Summer Festival follows a couple of weeks later, starting on the evening of Wednesday 13th, with full day opening Friday and over the weekend. We are promised an interesting selection of beers in the marquee and on the bar.
The last two of the quartet will be the Hall Bower Festival the following weekend, which has again be well worth visiting in the past, along with 'Thurstyfest 3' at the Rose & Crown, Thurstonland.
All in all, a great time for the beer drinkers of the town, and a chance to get out and about to sample beers in wonderful surroundings. Just hope the weather is kind and they get the support that their efforts deserve.
